Oh, what do you do on it? Can you draw like this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=puyMmARTqck

Oh wait, it even has shitty lag. http://www.geek.com/android/the-nexus-7-lag-dilemma-and-why-theres-no-real-fix-1560784/

Enjoy your lagfest.

I don't get all the nonsense hate. Comparing a Nexus 7 to a Surface Pro is like comparing a lawn mower with a jet engine. Of course it going to burn more fuel because it can do more. .

You must be a stupid MS hater because you can't understand this. http://images.anandtech.com/graphs/graph7478/59454.png
Not to mention that fact that the comparison is against ARM tablets running crippled OSes like iOS and Android whose headline application is Angry Birds, and not things like Visual Studio or Photoshop.

Is Wikimedia counting unique hits or total requests?

For example, lets say you visit Wikipedia with your iPhone and browse 100 articles. Your friend with an Android phone browses only 1 article. Will you be counted 100 times more than him? That's how Statcounter works, by the way.

Comment Re:Niche market (Score 1) 390

Yeah, from my perspective I can't help but to notice the huge boner most people on internet have towards market share and mainstream market acceptance, regardless if it's for smartphones, computers, game consoles and accessories or services. People just seem to forget that business are about making money. Having a huge share may have some help with it, but that is not always true.

Now apply that logic to the following comparisons.

1) Server market: Windows Server vs. Linux
2) Web server market: IIS vs. (Apache + nginx)
3) Small and medium database market: SQL Server vs. (MySql + offshoots + PostgreSql)

Looks like Microsoft is kicking ass in all of the above. But according to Slashdot, Linux beats Windows Server and Apache beats IIS.

Comment Re:Two simple steps to avoid being locked into Azu (Score 1) 164

That doesn't make any sense. How is it lock-in when it's trivial to switch to another backup solution? How is switching away from Azure Backup more difficult than switching from a 3rd party back up service? TFA talks about how signing up for Azure Backup makes it easier to use other services. DUH. It's like having a Gmail account makes it easy to upload video to Youtube. Doesn't mean that you're getting locked into Gmail.
